Plan a Visit
Welcome to Shedd Aquarium! We can't wait for you to meet 32,000 amazing animals and explore the world’s oceans, rivers and reefs — right in the heart of Chicago.
The best Shedd visit begins online, not in line. We offer three easy ways to purchase your tickets in advance to avoid a long wait: Select our most popular ticket, the Total Experience Pass; become a Shedd member; or get a Chicago CityPASS, a great vacation value featuring Shedd and four other major attractions. See details on all advance ticket packages below. Other ticket packages are available on site. Quantities are limited and may sell out.
When you're at Shedd, you're our guest, and everything we do is designed to give you an incredible visit.
